I am writing to ask for your help on behalf of East Palo Alto (EPA) youth and young adults who need to work this summer AND the coalition of nonprofit organizations led by One East Palo Alto (OEPA), OICW, and El Concilio of San Mateo County, which has planned and implemented efforts to create, grow and sustain the now highly acclaimed Sponsored Employment Program (SEP).
In 2005, OEPA used its role as convenor of the East Palo Alto Crime Reduction Task Force and lead of the Task Force's Prevention and Alternatives Committee (PAC), to spearhead an important local initiative an action-oriented community-wide response to then increasing incidents of crime and violence, especially those involving our youth and young adults (YYA). That response gave birth to a grassroots movement to reconnect with EPA youth, show them that we care, bring summer jobs back to the community, and create positive income earning opportunities for YYAs who demonstrate the greatest need to work.
